A laminar flow control aircraft wing combines suction surfaces and slots in its leading and trailing edge regions, with natural laminar flow over its main box region to achieve laminar boundary layer flow over a majority of the wing surface area. The wing includes a leading edge flap that is used to protect the leading edge region of the wing from insect accumulation and surface erosion caused by the impact of dirt, rain, or other airborne materials when the leading edge flap is deployed in a low-speed position. At high aircraft speeds, the leading edge ...
A laminar flow control airfoil having a leading edge and a trailing edge, comprising: a leading edge region including the leading edge of said airfoil; the leading edge flap means for providing additional lift for said airfoil during low-speed operation of said airfoil and for protecting said leading edge region from insect accumulation and surface erosion caused by dirt and rain during said low-speed operation, said leading edge flap means being movable between a low-speed position and a cruise position; first suction means associated with said leading ...
